My All Time FAVORITE Sandwich....

This is the day I wait for EVERY summer....  the first picking of
red tomatoes! We got back from vacation last night, so today I went out
and investigated in the garden. (Ok, so truthfully,
I ONLY looked at the tomato plants!)

As soon as I saw them....
I knew today would be the day.... 
 open faced broiled
tomato sandwich day!! 
Two slices of multi grain bread with a bit of mayonnaise
spread on them.....
Then, sliced tomatoes to cover the bread topped
with thin slices of cheddar cheese.  Next, put them
on a cookie sheet and broil them till the cheese just
starts to turn brown and bubbly!
Last step....  cool a little and eat!!


If you can't get your hand on fresh grown tomatoes,
you can use the vine ripened ones from the grocery store... not
quite as good, but a fair substitute for that cold winter day when
the cravings just won't let up! :) Try it... you'll love it!

MMMM... Looks yummy! I still remember the first time I had one of these! The only thing that could make it even better is a nice crisp slice of bacon on top!

OOOh, you are SOOO right! :) Bacon does make it even better!

Thanks for the puddle of drool on my laptop. The best moment of the summer!

(Although, didn't get red tomatoes until August 17th? Late frost? Or do you always have to wait until nearly Labor Day to get red tomatoes?)

One time, when Mrs. Dreghorn had way too many tomatoes and had given away all she could, Lynn & I mixed a bunch of them up to make "paint" and decorated her porch steps. (Can't remember if she was mad or not...were you in on that little stunt?)

P.S. Bacon does make everything better. I just haven't figured out how to get it in my coffee.

That is WAY TOO FUNNY! Nope, I wasn't involved in that little scheme (for once). I bet she was not happy, but she never seem to get mad too much when we were kids! (or at least when we were around!) She was a sweetheart! Keep her in your prayers as she is battling the horrible alzheimer's disease...
